|The White Room
| Our studio is
a white room where the walls & floors are
one color. This makes for easier separation of
the final image if its intended use is on a magazine
layout or a web page.
Professional Studio Lighting
We use the Alien Bees B800's. They
are self-contained studio flash units which
produce 320 true watts per second and 800 effective
watts per second of power. The Alien Bee B800
outputs 14,000 lumens per second. It is adjustable
from full down to 1/32nd of the total power,
in whole f-stop increments and everywhere in-between.
The Alien Bees B800 are built for 'bang-bang'
shooting. With a speed recycle to full power
in just 1 second, you will never need to wait
for your next shot.
Our 32"x40" softboxes provide a soft,
diffused output that evenly covers the subject
with a gorgeous wash of light. Each box has
a highly-reflective silver lining to bounce
the light before it's diffused through the front
panel for a soft, even spread of light. Additionally
it has a second internal baffle for double diffusion
to create even softer results.
For our backdrops,
we use Savage Universal's Photowide and Widetone
seamless background papers. They are a high
quality, fine tooth non-reflecting surface which
has been used by professional photographers
for fifty-five years. The Widetone comes in
lengths of 26", 53" and 107".
The Photowide is 140" across. Always in
stock are pure white, black and thunder gray
of the Photowide. upon request we can provide
any of the following backgrounds. Backdrop
||A graphics workstation
is provided to assist with the shoot. If shooting
digital, it allows the option to temporarily store
your photos for creating DVD’s.
||Great photos come
when you are comfortable with both your photographer
and environment. We have many techniques to help
relax models and make
them feel at home.
